“If you enjoy problem solving and having the ability to make a difference, this is a terrific industry.”
PRESIDENT, BAYLOR TRUCKING
HOW DID YOU FIRST ENTER THE BUSINESS?
I am the President of Baylor Trucking, a family business started by my grandfather in 1945 with one truck after he served in World War II. I started working in the office at 14 years old, so trucking is a way of life, not a job.
WHAT DO YOU MOST ENJOY ABOUT YOUR INDUSTRY?
What I love most about the industry is the passionate people. Every day you will have people that will work so hard to make a difference. Whether they are delivering a birthday present, an anniversary gift, an iPhone or medical supplies, they will make it happen. The people are also first to volunteer to help each other or communities during natural disasters.
WHAT OPPORTUNITIES DOES TRUCKING HAVE FOR WOMEN?
Trucking has opportunities in every aspect of fulfilling careers! Accounting, Sales, Account Management, Marketing, Safety, Driving, Maintenance, IT, HR, whatever is your skillset and talent you can contribute with advancement opportunities in this industry. Each day is different. Each day is a challenge. If you enjoy problem solving and having the ability to make a difference, this is a terrific industry.
